A Case of Conscience

James Blish


Copyright/published Year: 1972 by Ballantine


ISBN: 0345027558


Binding: paperback

A well-deserved Hugo award went to this fascinating study of the place of religion in a future star-travelling society. Most of the action takes place on the newly-discovered planet Lithia, a paradise, idyllic, so like an unsettled Earth, yet so different. The protagonist, Father Ruiz-Sanchez, is both a priest and a biologist. He grows to feel that Lithia is a trap, a soul-trap, which will result in the damnation of first the exploring party, then the entire human race!
